Rupert Grint: Kissing Emma Watson Was Just 'Okay'

Rupert Grint does not count himself among the massive number of males who probably want to smooch Emma Watson.

"It was actually okay," Grint, 22, said of his onscreen kiss with Watson in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which opened in theaters Friday. "It was just the anticipation. Neither of us were looking forward to it."

Grint does, however, acknowledge that may seem a bit unbelievable to most fans.

No more classes, no more books, no more teachers' dir–well, no more teachers at all, really.

The penultimate Potter film abandons Hogwarts, thrusting Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) into the wilderness on a grimly adult hunt for clues to thwart Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). Sadly, dividing J.K. Rowling's final Potter book into two films, however logical, does more violence to the material than even Voldemort could manage.

Though the trio's trek through the first half of the book is often scary, the film underscores its tediousness; at nearly 2½ hours, it's far too long.

How did Darren Criss celebrate joining the cast of Glee? By attending one of the hottest events in town – Monday's premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 in New York City.

After last week's episode, which featured Criss singing Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," the actor joined the likes of Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron as a series regular on the FOX hit musical comedy.

"Darren has become such a sensation in one week, which I love," executive producer Ryan Murphy told the Web site AfterElton.com. "I think there's a hunger for him and a positive relationship role model. He'll definitely continue through the year and longer. We just signed a deal with him."

Harry Potter Dons a Bra in New Trailer

Originally posted 10/20/2010 02:05PM



Is Harry Potter a secret cross-dresser?

Not exactly, but Daniel Radcliffe does wear a pale, lacy bra in a new trailer for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

In the clip, Radcliffe says in a high-pitched girl's voice, "Look away, I'm hideous." So is it really Potter himself in a brazier?

Nope. In the plot of the film, a bunch of Potter's pals take a potion to transform themselves into Potter lookalikes, so it's actually Fleur Delacour who is the bra-wearing Harry.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 hits theaters Nov. 19.

Think of what it must be like to leave high school after 10 years: happy, yet melancholy.

That, at least, were the mixed emotions coming from Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as deduced by Entertainment Weekly earlier this summer, as the acting trio wrapped up the final two Harry Potter adventures.

"I'm ready to kind of move on now, I think," Grint, 21, is quoted as saying in the latest cover story of the magazine, on sale Friday. "This film is a great way to finish the whole era, and it's going to be sad, because obviously all my friends are here, but 10 years is enough."

Emma Watson Throws Harry Potter Farewell Dinner

Originally posted 06/17/2010 11:00AM

Unlike her prim alter ego, Emma Watson knows how to throw a party.

The actress, 20, who plays straight-laced Hermione Granger in the blockbuster Harry Potter franchise, hosted a dinner at her home in England recently as filming on the series drew to a close.

"The last week of filming Emma had a dinner at her place, and we spoke about the best moments of filming, our secret crushes on set – all kinds of random questions," says James Phelps, who plays mischievous Fred Weasley in the movies. "But all the answers to these questions will stay in that room!"



Phelps and his twin brother Oliver, along with Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Michael Gambon and Tom Felton were in Orlando Wednesday night for the grand opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. Also on hand: Potter author J.K. Rowling, who attended the event with her husband Neil Murray but didn't speak to the press.

Daniel Radcliffe reluctantly retired his wand for good this week as shooting wrapped up on the final installment of the Harry Potter saga.

"Everyone was really devastated. It was really, really sad," Radcliffe told the Associated Press Sunday after ending filming on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which will be released in two parts. "We're crying quite a lot."

With a decade of playing the boy wizard under his belt, Radcliffe says the role has been life-changing. "Everything [about the films] is so linked to my life," he said at the National Movie Awards in London as shooting was coming to a close. "At the same time, it is exciting. It is the end."
